WELCOME HOME: IMMIGRANTS AND IMMIGRANT CULTURE IN NEW ORLEANS
As a port city, New Orleans has long welcomed members of various cultures to our population. Loyola professor Justin Nystrom has followed the culinary and cultural fortunes of Italians, Tulane professor Mark VanLandingham has studied the resilience of the Vietnamese, Tulane’s Laura D. Kelley has celebrated the vibrant Irish traditions, and Tulane’s Jana Lipman has studied the rich contributions of Latinx migrants. It all adds up to a diverse community with many voices. Moderated by David Johnson.
